Answer:

The US Dept. of Labor says that you must be unemployed Through no fault of your own and that is determined by particular State laws. Depending on that state law, to quit to move somewhere else is not "through no fault of your own". Some states do allow unemployment benefits if you quit for non-job related reasons (i.e. spouse relocation, military, domestic violence issues, etc.) The Related Link below gives many facts about unemployment laws and rules. Mainly, check with your own State's unemployment office for clarification in you. state.

Answer

I don't know about your state. But here in NC if you quit your job, your are not eligible for any unemployment. You are eligible only if you are fired or laid off.

Opinion:

First of all that wouldn't really be honest and second i think it would depend on the state

...yes...

No, those are state tax benefits that can only be taxed by the state you live in.

If you were collecting unemployment benefits in one state and are eligible to continue collecting them but move to another state then you should still be able to collect unemployment but you must apply for unemployment in the new state you are moving to.

In most States if you quit your job voluntarily you aren't eligible for unemployment benefits.

If you qualified, you can collect unemployment from Texas, the "liable state", but not from the state you move to.

The state you perform your work in is the "liable state", the state that pays your unemployment benefits. No matter whether you live in the state you work in, or even if the company's headquarters are in another, you get your benefits from where you work.

If you qualify for unemployment benefits from Massachusetts, then you can continue to collect from them if you follow their instructions for your move out of state.

You might want to call a lawyer or whoever is giving you the unemployment benefits. My best guess is no because you are leaving the state so you must apply for unemployment benefits for the state you relocate in. Keep on striving!

Unemployment benefits extended in the 2009 economic stimulus planPreviously, unemployed workers were eligible for 26 weeks of unemployment benefits. As as result of this bill, unemployment benefits was extended by 20 weeks regardless of which state they live in. In some higher-unemployment states such as California, there will be another 13 weeks of unemployment benefits available as well.Total weeks of unemployment available:Low-unemployment state - eligible for 46 weeks of benefits.High-unemployment state - eligible for 59 weeks of benefits.Increased unemployment benefits by $25 per week.Although it varies from from state to state, the average unemployment benefit payout will be increased by $25 to about $325 per week. Your claim lasts for one year, but the full amount is 26 times the weekly benefit amount, currently at $405 max.

It depends on the state you are receiving unemployment benefits from. In my state, North Carolina, the answer is no.

Yes, illegal immigrants are ineligible for benefits. However, you can be a legal resident in one state, work in another state and be eligible for unemployment benefits from the state you WORK in.

The employer does not pay unemployment benefits. The employer pays unemployment insurance premiums to the State of lllinois. When the employee is terminated, the employee applies for unemployment benefits with the State of Illinois. The state determines if the employee is eligible for benefits and, if the employee is awarded benefits, those benefits are paid and monitored by the State of Illinois.

You can continue to receive unemployment benefits upon moving to another state, providing you notified the state's employment security office of the state you moved from (called the 'liable state') and continued to comply with its requirements regarding the move. However, the state you move to has no obligation to pay you from its funds.

If you are a resident of AZ, and collecting unemployment benefits from both AZ and TX, AZ could possibly garnish the TX benefits to help defray their costs.

Yes, at least in Oregon and New Jersey. Go to the unemployment office and ask about it.

Only states that are liable (work was performed in them) are responsible for unemployment claims. If you worked in more than one state during the base period, the first liable state can require you to file partial unemployment in another state you worked in, to share the total unemployment benefit. The particulars depend on the states involved as each state has its own rules and regulations pertaining to benefits.

No. Neither state offsets unemployment benefits by the Social Security benefits.

Only the "liable state" pays the benefits. That is the state where you worked when you lost your job. You can apply through another "agency state" to help in receiving those benefits from the liable state, however.

The business pays a payroll tax to the state, which in turn pays the unemployment benefits.

Unemployment benefits vary, baed on the wages you were making, and the benefits in your state. You will need to check with your state employment agency.

Requirements for unemployment vary from state to state. Contact your state's job and family services department in order to determined if you are eligible for unemployment benefits. During your consultation you can also begin the preliminary application for benefits.

You could file for unemployment in Virginia, but under the interstate unemployment benefits program, only the "liable" state, Florida in this case would be obligated to pay, and under the terms and conditions of its laws.
